Photo Friday 03.13: Memorial Chorten

Photo Friday‘ is a weekly series showcasing pictures from around the world.

↑ Thimphu’s memorial chorten, built in 1974 to honour the 3rd King of Bhutan, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck (1928–1972), is a prominent landmark in the city with its golden spires and bells.

The best time to visit here is in the morning when devotees arrive to offer respects and pray. Read more in my Bhutan travelogue and photo gallery.
